That is a nice looking Vaughan crawler for sale.   Did you buy it or are you transporting it for someone else ?

I was just transporting it for him.

 

It IS for sale though.

 

I did find out that Ben didn't put that much PSI in the front tires though.

 

I lifted it up, and the rims danged near touched the ground. 

 

Those tires are rated for 1140 lbs. at 45 PSI. I'll get them 45 PSI, and I'll be good to go.

I would think that 1140 pounds per tire rating would cover most anything that you're likely to lift with the forklift.

Just out of curiosity,  do they make hard rubber tires that would fit on the front ?

 

By the way ... you certainly look like one happy camper hauling that crawler around.

It was especially sweet, as the fella that owns the crawler was 'ragging' on the Bolens.  All in good fun though.

 

I told him that now he has to say GOOD stuff about Bolens tractors from now on  :D :D :D

 

Good bunch of guys under the VGTCOA tent, and we are having fun aggravating each other.

Nice pictures.  Too bad the show is so far away from me.  If your still there do you think you could see if the guy with the Brillion Explorer GT has any info on them?  Second set of pics you posted fourth row the first 2.  I have one and haven't had much luck finding any info on them other than the article in LAGT mag and a brochure I came across.  Thanks in advance.       Stewart

Another nice day with GREAT weather.

 

Not sure what the Official count was for GTs, but there are a bunch here.

I like the portable generator.

They sure did an excellent job on that scale model John Deere.    Do you know what the engine is that they used in it ?

 

Thanks for taking the time to post all the photos.  I enjoy looking thru them.

OB, Thanks so much for the photos. Looks like a great show. Did you happen to talk to the guy with the Bush Hog? How about a Serial number?

IF I remember right, it's a Clinton that was turned sideways so that the cylinders lay flat just like the big 2-cyl Deere, and he make a special oiling setup so that it would get lubed.

No, he wasn't around when I took the pic. IF it's still here this morning I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for all the nice pictures. The fella with the portable generator sure likes

horns too. Did he have a compressor on there somewhere too, for the whistle?

The diesel Cub, Original, and the Sears pedal tractor next to that Economy w/sickle belong to member Searstractorfan

 

Thanks for pics, I so wished I could have came up. Looks like it would have been worth the drive.

Well, it's pretty much all over but the shouting.

 

Was a really nice show with a LOT of GTs.  We are figuring that there were 260-270 here.  Kinda hard to get an accurate count as there were always some in the campground, and others driving around.

 

About the only thing that was picture worthy was the Forklift once again called into action to load the Vaughn that I unloaded the other day.

 

We will be staying overnight here, and will be heading for the Plain City OH show tomorrow.

 

Here's the last pics for this show.

The most noteworthy picture didn't get taken. I don't think he wanted to show 3 of us pushing him and Bolens on the trailer. Not to mention the fact it ran out of gas getting to the trailer. I don't think it wanted to leave. Thanks for your help moving the derelict tractor OB!!

 

They sure did an excellent job on that scale model John Deere.    Do you know what the engine is that they used in it ?

 

 

The engine was a 2 cylinder Cushman laid over sideways.  He added an oil pump and lines to lube it.

 

 

All in all it was a good weekend with a lot of fun, good weather, and good memories. Thanks to everyone that came out and made the show a success.

Now dang it, you wasn't supposed to tell that part  :tapping_fingers:

 

I got an excuse for running out of gas though ... it was from moving that Vaughn around  :D :D :D

 

Thanks for the help loading and the splash of gas. :thumbs:  

 

I actually started the show with a full tank, which is around 5 Gal.  Tha big ole Kohler sure is one thirsty rascal
